A combo of Alan Henderson and Antonio Davis isn't going to get it done.

Would Foye or Roy have been better at the point?

Well, you can't keep taking the same position players. Even if you say this Williams plays center you have no height inside at all. Guys like Tony Parker along with Wade will easily shoot over the Hawks frontline and not have a challenge doing it.

I know exactly how to make the hawks contenders. Trade harrington to the knicks for Jamal Crawford and Maurice Taylor( Taylor is in his last yr of his contract ) sign Joel Przybilla, and then trade Salim Stoudamire and Josh Smith for Luke Ridnour. These simple moves will give the hawks a strong bench, be still under the cap,a true point guard, size, and defensive The line up will then be:

Luke Ridnour-Tyronn Lue
Joe Johnson-Jamal Crawford
Marvin Williams-Josh Childress
Sheldon Williams-Maurice Taylor
Zaza Pachulia-Joel Przybilla

2006-2007 Atlanta Hawks aka- the eastern conference phoenix suns with better defense

You absolutely cant be a Hawks fan if you would Trade Josh Smith and Salim for Ridnour. Those two alone could net the Hawks Iverson in a deal.

I have been a Hawks fan for year ever since their golden days with Mutumbo, Smith, Mookie and Latner.... Watching the Hawks in the past 2 years most fans and spectators who watch the Hawks regularly (like I) would agree that one of our major weaknesses is defense. At the end of the game we cant come down with the rebound, get a block or stop the run which eventually leads to a loss. I really enjoy this pick mainly because we can acquire a good PG through FA such as Cassel, Boykins and possibly Terry (he just signed with Mavs. so no chance) and many other. It will be tough to get a player built like Sheldan and as good on defense like Shelden. I think this pick will end up being a great pick since we will wign or trade for a PG.

S.Williams is a good pick-up. He reminds me of a cross between Antonio Davis and Rocky Dennis.

shelden is a power forward, but can play center for u guys cuz hes not much shorter than zaza. He will be ur starting power forward from the getgo, and im assuming harrington is gone, and the only thing u guys can really do is sign and trade him. He was a safe, solid pick, but marcus williams or foye mightve been better. It wasnt a bad pick at all tho...

I doubt he will start at PF from the getgo because he will have some competition with J-Smoove or Williams. I see him being a solid 6th man putting up 15-10 numbers and later on his career putting 20-10. He could be like Antonio Davis or Elton Brand or Carlos Boozer. I think he will give Zaza some competition which is good.

good pick for the atlanta hawks! i think he's the most polished and NBA ready player in the draft... he will be consistent right off the bat, and average 14/9 his rookie year with a handfull of 28/14 games in the season. good pick, i wish the bulls coulda got him.
